Police presence sets off nerves and an accident

Two men, made nervous by the unwanted attention of police, crashed their motorbike in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district early yesterday morning.

Police said that the men were driving down the road on a moto at about 3am, when patrolling police began following them.

One broke his arm, while the other is still unconscious. CAMBODIA EXPRESS NEWS
